Heres my ride & all my possesions, I am King of living simple. o/\o (<~~Hi 5)

She's a Colin Laing w/ bits thrown together by myself & my daily ride regardless of wether its 40* or 115* outside.



I do own a car though & rarely (8/10x a year) drive it, havent found too many girls that get a laugh at or stick around after "Well...you can ride on the handlebars, it wont take THAT long ..honest"

With a name like FatBaldMen are you sure its the bike that is the turn off? Maybe you need a heavy duty rear rack and a FatBalWoman!

Here's my main hauling bike (and we've got a rhode gear trailer for extra weight or kids):

shogunhyperspacerearview..jpg

(excuse the hyperspace effect.)

Here's my current bike for quick trips and going to school:

free spirit side view..jpg

It replaces this Dunelt, which was stolen about a year ago:

And my wife's bike:

And two new bikes:

Not pictured here are about four kid's bikes.

That's the 29er stock 32x18 gearing which can go 1x9. I'm not close to any mountains, but there is steep hills/trails. Plus I like the simplicity of SS.

Here is my commuter. Just picked it up today in fact. It is replacing my trusty GT Talera. Sorry for the low quality. I will try to post a better one during daylight .

The picture is kinda weird its only a 300mm post and its in there plenty the frame is a tad small its a 17" 1995 raleigh m-50 i like the 17s because of the step over height im only 5 9 so its not way too small

Heres a better pic, without front rack. Also the post is the same color as frame so you cant really see where the frame ends and the post begins. Im still convinced its an optical illusion but that may be because im just used to it

Here's my Road Hybrid, the other photo is my homemade utility trailer for gathering "stuff" when needed and I have a Jamis Durango Hardtail MTB, as my "back up"!

The bikes/cars each have different purposes

The "trucker" for the big loads and road bike




The all weather wonder fixed gear


The lockup/around town/commuter fixed gear
